Police officers turned their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio as he walked into the police press conference about the two NYPD officers shot and killed execution-style in Brooklyn.
Not just the cops on hand at the presser blamed De Blasio, Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis pointed the finger of blame at Mayor
Bill de Blasio for growing "anti-police sentiment" as she and other
Staten Island politicians spoke out against the shooting of two NYPD officers in Brooklyn.
A statement apparently issued by the city’s main police union, the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, blamed the mayor for Saturday’s shootings.“The mayor’s hands are literally dripping with our blood because of his words, actions and policies and we have, for the first time in a number of years, become a wartime police department,” it said. “We will act accordingly.”
Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik told Newsmax that Saturday's execution-style shooting of two uniformed police officers was ultimately encouraged by Mayor Bill de Blasio and the Rev. Al Sharpton — and "they have blood on their hands."
"de Blasio, Sharpton and all those who encouraged this anti-cop, racist mentality all have blood on their hands," he said. "They have blood on their hands."
